Welcome to Wikidata, Smb1001!
Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!
Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:
- Introduction – An introduction to the project.
- Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
- Community portal – The portal for community members.
- User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
- Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
- Project chat – Discussions about the project.
- Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.
Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.
If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.
Best regards! Cycn
For merging items, you may want to use the merge.js gadget from help page about merging. It has an option "Request deletion for extra items on RfD" to automatically place a request to delete the empytied page. This way of nominating makes it a lot easier for the admins to process the requests.
- Please keep the lower numbered item if it is a lot lower. Only if the higher number has links to it you should keep that one. - - (Cycn/talk) 13:16, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks for the merge help. I had intended to merge to the lower ID, and only now notice that I should merge from the page you want to lose not the page you want to keep. Will ensure I get it right from here. Feel free to undo any changes I just made. Smb1001 (talk) 13:21, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi Smb1001, you've add for "radio station" the description: "source transmitting at distance using radio waves". This is one possible definition, but imho not what this item stands for. It's more like "organisation that produces and transmits radio programs", but I'm not a native English speaker. (See: List of terminology.) Would be great if you can help.

Hello Smb1001, I saw that you modify some items concerning language at the beginning of this year. With the property instance of (P31), you used language (Q315) instead of language (Q34770). So if you contribute again on language items, please remember to use language (Q34770) and not language (Q315). Thank you :D Pamputt (talk) 22:07, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
ICAO code and Q835576Edit
Smbbot keep adding an ICAO code to Otto-Lilienthal barracks (Q835576). This is wrong, since this item refers to the barracks surrounding the airfield, which is Roth Air Base (Q15110797) and already has the correct ICAO code. --Srittau (talk) 19:59, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
Hello Smb1001, I just saw your (bot’s) recent edits on The Boat Race items (e.g. ). I don’t think we need statements here, since all items already have , which itself subclasses rowing regatta (Q21224061). If we just add to anything that is somehow related to this sport, these statements are not useful for anything any longer. Regards, MisterSynergy (talk) 14:39, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
